    I think you would agree that aesthetics plays a huge part in car building. An aesthetically pleasing car will garner more attention, be appreciated more, have more value, and be easier to sell than one that is not.

    I absolutely agree. It's goofy.

    I think that if the engine were raised, and a truck bed added, it would look much better

    I don't think it's hopeless, I agree adding a bed and for me lowering the body and headlights would make it look a lot better

    With some work, it could be rebuilt to look more like this one.

    Maybe I'm goofy too, because I like the higher headlights and cab. If I had Photoshop I'd raise the engine (side pipes level with frame bottom) and add a bed. I know I'd like it.

    We went on a road trip today in Rita and I couldn't believe what I stumbled across today, I guess it hasn't sold yet

    Yes, it is not a diamond in the rough, it's kind of messed up. If I would have drove it home I think I would have wore a hole in the headers from steering shaft rubbing on it. If I would run over a turtle on the road it would killed the turtle and knocked off the transmission pan off. It was at a used car dealer that had cars packed in like sardines. It wasn't open so I didn't get into a fist fight lol

    You can tell they think highly of it....... The rear tire is almost flat and they leave it outside 24/7? You might be able to get a greeeaattt deal on it Seth!
